For simplicity's sake, I'll stick to currently supported Linux distros and versions of Windows. None of these are the "optimal" requirements, but rather the "minimum recommended."
133 Mhz Pentium (or compatible) processor
32 MB of RAM
2 GB hard drive with 650 MB free.
VGA video card
CD / DVD-ROM drive
233 Mhz Pentium (or compatible) processor
64 MB of RAM
Hard drive with at least 1.5 GB free
Keyboard & mouse
Video card with SVGA resolution.
CD / DVD-ROM drive
800 Mhz Pentium III (or compatible) processor
512 MB of RAM.
20 GB hard drive
Keyboard & mouse
VESA-compliant video card
16 MB RAM
50 MB of free space on hard drive (can be run straight from a CD)
Keyboard / mouse
48 MB / 64 MB - command line only *
64 MB - with desktop
1 GB / 5 GB hard drive - without / with desktop
VGA video card (for desktop)
keyboard (mouse needed for desktop)
Installation medium - install can be performed over network, with boot floppies and internet connection, or CD drive
*64 MB is the charted minimum. 48 MB is mentioned in the paragraph explaining that the estimates recommendations are conservative
300 Mhz processor
64 MB of RAM
4 GB free hard drive space
CD / DVD drive
keyboard / mouse
The hardware requirements will vary depending on the application. it is best to consutl with a IT professional for installation.
No, Linux is simply the operating system running on the hardware, much in the same way that you could run Windows or another OS on the same hardware.
Linux can run with virtually any hardware configuration, but it is best to check the system requirements for your Linux distro.
Linux has various versions. Windows steals linux and add various inefficiency so that people will force to buy new hardware.
The only differences hardware-wise between Windows and Linux are CPU architechtures. Windows use x86 CPU architechture and Linux can run on any architechture it is compiled for (from source code). Usually, you will find Linux precompiled for mainstream CPU architechtures (ie. - x86, Sparc, ARM, etc..)
the Windows XP Hardware Compatibility Lis
System requirements for Windows Movie Maker depends on your video card, level of hardware acceleration or hardware acceleration, and whether or not you have a previous version already installed.
Windows can be better in a few ways. One is that it supports more hardware. Another is that more programs run on it.
Yes, as long as the hardware meets XP's minimum requirements.
Windows XP is not in the direct upgrade path of Red Hat Linux 8.0. If you want to install Windows XP on a computer / server with RHL, you need to check the hardware specifications to see if Windows XP supports it.
Operating System, such as Windows or Linux.
Any operating system that you can run on a desktop can run on a laptop as long as the hardware requirements are met. Installation procedure is similar to the one on a desktop. This applies to Windows, Linux and Mac
The real question is can you hardware handle an upgrade. I would check the Vista hardware requirements and make sure your PC is up to the challenge.
No. Any machine that is capable of running Windows 7 is equally capable of running Linux; thus virtually every computer is "Linux ready." Depending on your specific needs, Linux can be run on far less powerful and cheaper hardware than Windows 7 can.
Linux to Windows: There is no relation at all aside from both being created for the same hardware initially. Linux to OS X: Technically no relation. however OS X is a full Unix-compliant operating system, meaning it actually does a lot of things very similarly to Linux.
Microsoft maintains an HCL (Hardware compatibility list) of hardware tested and certified for Windows XP. You can obtain this list on Microsoft's website.
Preemptive (both Windows and Linux).
Windows = Windows 8 Linux = Ubuntu 14.04
7 is an example of Windows. But Linux is not Windows and there is no "Linux 7." Linux is a completely different operating system and has nothing to do with Microsoft.
Linux can encompass a wide variety of platforms and system requirements. For a reasonable comparison between a Windows server, and a Linux server, let's use a common Linux server product, Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat Enterprise Linux: 2 GB RAM minimum 6 GB free hard drive space Windows Server 2008: 512 MB RAM minimum (2 GB or more recommended) 10 GB free space minimum (40 GB or more recommended)
Depending on the system in question, you can. VxWorks has lower hardware requirements than Linux, so it is often used in weaker systems.
